It probably seems crazy to most of you (especially those people living in Europe and the UK) to hear South Africans celebrating a rain storm. We're not always this way; but South Africa and especially the Northern Cape and the whole of the Free State has been caught in the grip of a debilitating dry spell since the beginning of summer (October 2015). Now we hope this is a thing of the past...
I posted on Face Book about a refreshing walk that Eddy, Skabenga and I had on the golf course on Tuesday morning. As I wandered along after the dogs , cavorting happily in the dams and along the muddy banks, I took photo after photo.
The dogs sniffing at all sorts of exciting smells in the wet ground. I noticed that I could capture both bridges over a small brook which has been a dry bed and now gurgling happily down to the dam at the golf clubhouse
Here I snapped the bridge in the foreground with a reed fence and a creosote pole fence behind it

Don't you just love it?

HAPPY THURSDAY TO YOU ALL!
